Super Bowl XX-Whatever

Really, isn't the NFL's use of Roman Numerals the most pretentious thing in sports?

We have the match up for Super Bowl XXXIX or 39 as we mortals would call it. The Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots. For the fourth year in a row, we'll see two teams I actively dislike. Why? It's not so much the teams but the fans. The Eagles are from Philly and play in front of what can only be perversely termed fans. These people take great pride in the fact that Santa Claus was once booed off the stage in Veterans Stadium and that they actually cheered when Michael Irvin was feared to be paralyzed. The Patriots are the latest team whose fans act like they invented the damned game, much like Dallas Cowboy fans of the 70's and 90's and the 49ers in the 80's. If I have to see any further stories on Tom Brady and his aggressively Average Joe persona I make puke.

I'm with you on Brady. Of course my problem with him is the fact that he's wearing Rich Gannon's ring on his right hand. IT WAS A F**KING FUMBLE!
